Paul Anthony’s Talent Time: Anti-S.A.D. BBQ Party

When the weather is at it’s worst, we will gather and fight Seasonal Affective Disorder with an old fashioned BBQ! We are hoping to get a BBQ food truck out front and then bring in food samples for you all to taste. Picnic on the stage under the hot sun? Plus lots of other summer themed entertainment to warm your chilly bones.
